The Courtship of a Wisconsin Black Bear

Unread postby Mike Foss » Thu Jul 10, 2014 10:23 pm

I hope this works. Here is some of the best bear trail camera video footage I have ever captured of a courtship and eventually mating to two black bears. Go to the youtube link below. If that doesn't work go to www.onwisconsinoutdoors.com

They are young, 3 maybe 4 years old. Don't know if I will ever top that footage.

That is some unique video Mike!

I have been known to enjoy a little horn porn from time to time but I'm not sure what to call this.

Bears appear to be more cordial during mating than whitetails from some of the mating that I've witnessed.
Awesome footage!!!

When that big buck walks towards you this fall, concentrate on your breathing and get your eyes off his antlers.
